MATH3753Applications of Mathematical Models (O)3 ch (3C)

Provides an overview of mathematical modeling strategies for particular applications. Introduces students in a variety of disciplines to mathematical modeling based problem solving. General concepts such as stochastic vs. deterministic modeling are discussed and case studies of specific applications are presented. Case studies may include models of survival, models of cognition, models of population growth and financial models. Students develop case studies in the areas of their major or their own expertise.
